The Pregnant Athlete

Learning To Embrace My Changing Pregnant Body While Swimming, Biking, Running & Practicing Yoga

Bon Giorno! Babymooning from Italy!


Week 19 | +?lbs

Bon Giorno from Roma! I had booked a surprise 30th birthday vacation for my husband last October before we were pregnant. Who would’ve thought then that the trip would also become our babymoon? Thankfully, it worked out well that we’re on travel during my second trimester! Surprisingly, walking has been quite challenging–perhaps the extra weight on my feet for long periods is the issue–but running has still been great, though I’m much slower than I used to be pre-pregnancy already.


Morning run around the Coloseum, Palantine Hill and the Roman Forum, 3/7/14

I’ll likely continue the weight gain on the trip given the copious amounts of pasta, pizza and gelato my husband and I have been eating.  Aside from not being able to drink wine, I can’t imagine a more perfect place to spend our babymoon! And the running sights will be beautiful. More details on our trip to Rome, Florence and Venice when we return to stateside in a week!

My name is Stephanie, and I was born and still live in New York City. I'm an avid distance runner, cyclist, snowboarder, swimmer and yogini (though I'm taking a break from some of these activities right now). It just so happens my active interests feed my love of food and traveling too! Oh! And did I mention that I'm pregnant...again? I also own a yoga studio, Sacred Sounds Yoga, in lower Manhattan. We offer classes in array of styles, including vinyasa, yin, Mysore ashtanga and Unnata Aerial Yoga. We also have prenatal, postnatal and kids yoga classes too!
